Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters

It’s been two weeks since my last Funny Friday, but for some reason, I couldn’t get into writing. But here we are again with two novels. Yes, only two single books. I thought I’d add one more, but somehow it didn’t fit. It’s not going to be a long post [I think].

Let’s start with a two-author story. Two fantastic authors that made an amazing job writing this book. The one and only…

Good Omens

Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

And try to tell me that book’s no good, I dare you!

The lazy or super busy ones had an occasion to listen to the adaptation of this story on BBC Radio. It was a rather good adaptation, so if you’ll ever have another chance just listen to it.

I’m not going to write a review, mostly because I just found some really nice ones on GR and I feel mine wouldn’t be as good, I mean, check out the first paragraph of this one: Jeremy Zerbe’s Reviews.

Why do I love this book? Continue reading “Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters”

Funny Friday – cats and devils

Cats and devils… sometimes I think it’s one and the same. My cat is kind of crazy, he can be all pet-me-now at one minute and I’ll-kill-you the next. Lucky that after so many years I’ve learned to recognize this little change in his eyes just before he’s going to strike :P.

Today I’ve got two books – one rather new graphic novel (that I was supposed to review at least two months ago) and one that I’ve read a few years ago because the author always makes me laugh.

I received this books from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

I was really surprised to see that Grumpy got her own graphic novel. Oh yes, Grumpy’s a girl. I admit I didn’t know that before. It might’ve been noted somewhere among all these funny meme’s, but who reads all these comments anyway ;). Continue reading “Funny Friday – cats and devils”

Devil’s children can be doomed too

Sons Of The DevilSons Of The Devil #1 by Brian Buccellato, Toni Infante

My rating: star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-empty-icon

Goodreads | Amazon

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Here’s a Goodreads blurb, which doesn’t tell you much, but hey, you’ll find out it was a bestseller… Seriously they should work on it because it’s a pretty good graphic novel, but I wouldn’t buy it with this description.

From New York Times Best Selling writer BRIAN BUCCELLATO and artist TONI INFANTE comes a psychological horror story about TRAVIS, an average guy trying to get by, who discovers that he has familial ties to a deadly cult. Told across three decades, SONS OF THE DEVIL is an exploration of cults, family, and the dark side of human nature. It’s TRUE DETECTIVE and ORPHAN BLACK meets HELTER SKELTER.

That story really surprised me. I don’t really know what I was expecting, but I honestly didn’t think I’d like it so much. And what’s it all about? It all starts with Travis. An orphan, who’s trying to make a life for himself now that he’s an adult. His life was never easy and it doesn’t seem it will change anytime soon. He’d like to find his father. The problem is, he doesn’t know who his father is [a satanic cult leader who tries to bring back the devil by killing all his children – you see the problem, right?].

For a start a story of witches, magic and mystery. It’s a bit scary, good if you’re in need of something like this :). I’ve listened to it about two years ago and I’m thinking of doing it again.
